Notes & Reviews:

“The programme...needs close rapport between soloist and orchestra. Here Fischer was lucky, for her conducting partner — for the last time alas — is Yakov Kreizberg...[who] cradles Fischer very tenderly, particularly in the Respighi...Fischer’s golden moments? Her singing line in the Respighi. Twinkling and darting in the Suk. And definitely her lark: nature enthroned in simple glory. May she long continue to enchant us.” -The Times

Julia Fischer follows her extraordinary Grammy-nominated recording of the Paganini Caprices with a contrasting album - a lyrical and poetic set of impressionistic works for violin and orchestra. Comprising four substantial pieces, this unique program is headed by Suk’s virtuosic Fantasy, a mini-concerto that is now justifiably finding its way into the concert repertoire. It is accompanied by two well-known tone poems – the elegant Poème by Chausson and the English pastoral The Lark Ascending by Vaughan Williams. The album is completed by Respighi’s Poema autunnale (of which there is only one other recording in the catalog), making the program truly multinational. For this recording, Julia Fischer is joined by her long-term colleague on the podium, Yakov Kreizberg, directing his own orchestra, the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra.

Classic FM Magazine
probably the finest [Lark] on record...Fischer's detailing of the avian solo line is so filled with little wonders and fresh insights that it is almost like discovering the music for the first time...Kreizberg and his Monte Carlo orchestra follow every fluctuation in Fischer's free-flowing solo line so that the orchestra and the soloist really do appear as one...This exceptional recording is a fitting tribute to a great musical partnership.

Gramophone Magazine
Chausson's Poeme thrives on the sort of fluent dialogue that Fischer and Kreizberg achieved as a matter of course and, although Fischer's playing is charged with emotion, she's placed in a sensible relation to the orchestra...Kreizberg's witty handling of the variations section [of the Suk] really made me smile...Fischer's tonally alluring, full-blooded performance sits perfectly within the context of an imaginatively chosen prgramme

International Record Review
Fischer's Chausson Poeme is lovely, with a finely spun solo line and impeccably judged double-stopping: it's passionately projected without the sound ever being forced. The orchestral support here has real fervour...Fischer is characteristically subtle [in The Lark] and she pays careful attention to detail...[She] is an engaging, sensitive soloist, possessing a fabulous technique, and the programme is very enjoyable.
